Sewing along with Market Friday

5개월 전


Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) I hope you will join me as we share different markets across the globe. Different and varied as the countries themselves, I always look forward to seeing what you send me. Come. Sit down. Relax. Enjoy the shortest trip around the world you ever experienced, taking in a market from somewhere different than what you have. And always remember #MarketFriday loves you!

We have enlisted the help of our friend to cut the pattern so we can sew them. We have created an assembly line of sorts. We couldn't have done it without him.

The recent events of the coronavirus have changed all of our lives, in ways that I never dreamed possible. I try not to react emotionally every time the news comes on, but it’s hard to grasp that there is something that is a bigger life changer than 9/11 was in my life. They project the number of deaths that is unrealistic to me. But, I do know that projections are always bounded by inaccuracies. So, I will continue to keep a positive outlook or at least look for the silver lining in this. It's there. I think I saw it yesterday.

I have chosen to use this time for the better good, as long as needed, for as many as humanly possible. My family and I have taken it upon ourselves to make masks to give away to ancillary workers in the health field, some have become desperate for protection from the coronavirus.

I had to ask the question of myself, then get a qualified answer. I can sew masks. Will hospitals be able to use them? The short answer is yes, if they get desperate enough. Call your local hospital if you are looking to participate. They will continue to use the preferred, unused, commercially produced medical-grade masks. Until they no longer have them.

So many different, cute fabrics. The Wigle family decided to make masks for our local grocery store this week, pharmacy and others that had to work. We enlisted our best cutters!


I realize that #MarketFriday is a challenge at this time. Many people are using memories, from days gone by or perhaps markets that they haven't posted. In these trying times, I am happy to see people still partaking in #MarketFriday. Use what photos you have. If you get to go shopping, we would love to see! Don't forget to take photos - whether it be the grocery, art galleries, or even the pharmacy, wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Don't forget to use the hashtag #MarketFriday and @dswigle.

Please leave the link to your post on here so it can easily be found by others. They are easier to find in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much!! ❤

I cannot thank you enough for being a part of #MarketFriday! I realize what a challenge it has been to put one together and I must say that last week really surprised me. Stepping up to the challenge, every person put great effort into making it a most rewarding week. I truly thank you.

As I told you last week, here in the States, it is recommended that you wear a mask when you are going out in public. At one point, they were deemed not necessary, I believe because of the scarcity of masks for the medical sector. Can you blame them? Step right up, Do it Yourselfers! You have saved the day once again!

A few weeks ago, after much searching online, I found that JoAnn Fabric was a great place to get my fabric for making a few masks and in the meantime, help out the local community. Check out the site here: https://www.joann.com/make-to-give-response/ I bought what I needed and picked up a few kits too. Now, I just make my own and donate them. If you want, you can shop online and they have a service to deliver to you curbside. This way, fewer public appearances. And right now, they are even offering deep discounts. Check out the site, it has patterns to make the masks, although, I have an easier one at the bottom of the page!

The kit kat is without the pleats yet. Give it a moment and we'll get some in. These were fun to make and I know that plain colors would probably fit the old man in you, but, these are just happy!

Finished and ready to give out/and ship. Thanks for keeping us company while we put these together. If anyone is interested in making one for them or their families, the pattern is at the bottom of the page. Anyone who cannot make one, let me know and I will send you one. Seriously. Everyone should be wearing a mask now.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"

it answered,
"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Thank you for your dedication to the #MarketFriday challenge! I cannot tell you how much it means to me to know I have a core group of people that literally never miss a week.

The masks were a fun family project and Winnie the Pooh was probably the most requested fabric. (seriously!) Thank you so much for your friendship and your posts that put a smile on everyone's face, every single day. The sheer beauty of it all.

Thank you for dropping your link here! Stay safe!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Oh. I so wish that we could all overcome this terrible pandemic and start living the same life! I wish all of us health and wisdom! Patience and more patience... So as not to leave the house and get infected from idly wandering and careless people who do not care about others...

And this is my new post for #marketfriday

We can only hope that those that are out there are being careful. Not infecting others and keeping a mask on. I pray for our world that this too shall pass.

Please stay safe. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Awesome !

I see teddy in the background of the photo that has finished packages..... with his mask on. hee hee..... too cute!!

Keep up the good work ! 🙂💚💙💜💛

·

You did, didn't you? He didn't want to get too close to me! Smart little guy, in fact! We used him for our model. He didn't have any say in the matter!

Hi, El! I hope all is doing well with you and your mom/stepdad. I know how hard that has got to be on her now, especially as you don't get to drop in and give her a hand. She is in my thoughts and prayers. xoxo

Stay safe!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Thank you for keeping Mom in your thoughts and prayers. She is putting on a brave happy face through it all. One of my sisters who is retired takes out supplies and rations once a week and they have a system where she leaves it in the trunk of a car and Mom leaves some for later and takes some out with a routine to try to be safe. Mom doesn't want to take any chances and Tommy, bless his heart, doesn't have the enough brains left to understand what is going on, so you can't rely on him to not touch anything ! LOL ....so she gets her deliveries while he is still sleeping. If he is awake, there is something still in him that wants to help you carry things and give hugs and.... well.... all those wonderful things that are no longer allowed. wah... poor baby !

The teddy bear is smart! He’s a great helper!
You’ve chosen very nice fabric!! The mask are so well made! So good of you to be thinking of others’ well being and safety.

God bless.

·

Hehe! He really is and a great helper also! Thank you! We were using fabric that we had and yesterday I had to buy just a little bit more, but, I worry about the fact that there aren't enough masks to go around and people aren't always staying in.

My family is staying quarantined, but, not everybody is listening to reason. They think they cannot get it. I hope you are having a good week and know you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Thank you for stopping by and saying hello! Stay safe!

Thank you very much for your support and kind consideration.

I think people there haven’t seen all the leaked video clips from Wuhan! Here they are easily accessible, they are horrible. So, people here know that it’s very infectious! But they have gone too far with the fear factor! They think they might have it even though they weren’t near any risky people or areas.

Stay safe and strong always!

Best.

I haven't seen many! That may do it if they saw a few. I saw the piles of humans they were carrying around.

I am pretty sure you have way more circulating than we do.

Stay safe yourself!!!!
